This course focuses on the promotion of language, literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development of preschool children through the integration of evidence-based practices and scientifically-based research within the preschool curriculum and in alignment with Maine’s Early Childhood Learning Guidelines. Course content includes examination of the development of preschool children, including children with special educational needs, those considered at risk, and with diverse backgrounds and abilities, in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Part B, Maine’s Chapter 101, and the State Performance Plan.
